Bike DescriptionBlack Cannondale Caad8 with grey detailing on frame. 54 size frame. Had silver Shimano a530 pedals (single sided cleat mechanism). Handlebar silver end plug is missing on right side. Had a black specialised rib cage II bottle holder. Was stolen with a broken bell, attachments for front and back FWE rechargeable lights and a quadlock iphone mount but these will likely be removed.
Theft DescriptionMy bike was one of several bikes stolen from a locked bike cage in the garage of our building in Hackney Wick. This was a proper organised theft as 6 bikes went and all were individually locked up within the locked cage, which requires a code to access. My bike was locked to the rack with a D lock, which was cut off with an angle grinder. A white van was parked up outside around 3am on saturday morning so we think this was used to take the bikes off site.
Recovery DescriptionFound it for sale on Gumtree twice! Eventually got hold of the seller and got police to accompany us in meeting to buy it back.
